If it doesn't turn over and acts like a dead battery, take both battery cables off and clean both ends. Make sure there is a good ground between the engine and the body. If it still does it, go to Auto Zone and have them check the alt and battery for free. How about a starter problem ??

It could be two things. As you know, the alternator charges the battery so it will not drain. If the alternator is not working properly to charge the battery, the battery will continuously drain. Have the alternator tested at your local Auto Parts store (NAPA or Advance Auto) If it is good, have the battery checked.
